December Chairman’s Report
One of our greatest strengths as an organization has been our ability to hold fast to tradition over the course of one hundred thirty-five years.

March 2019 Chairman’s Report
As breeders, exhibitors and club members, we would all likely agree that our dogs have a powerful effect on almost everything we do. For many of us, dogs have changed our lives in incredible ways.

Making New Strides in Canine Health Whether our passion lies in the show ring, the field, the whelping box, or any combination thereof, our goal to produce, raise and own healthy purebred dogs is one we all share.
